Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

7.03pm How important was that lapse in the field from Johnson Charles? The required rate was mounting, the pressure was on, and it could all have been very different for Sultans. But as it turned out, Pollard went on to slam four more sixes on his way to a fifty, Amin raising a fifty of his own, and the pair settling the matter with an unbroken 91-run stand. Pollard is the Player of the Match for his innings.

“The first couple balls, you’re a bit anxious so I just tried to keep calm,” says Pollard. “It was getting a bit tight, but if you stay until the end one big over gets you right back into the game. I looked at the balls left, the runs to get, and also the bowlers left. We had to go at 12 towards the end, but we were going at 8s and 9s, but we knew one big over would get us back in it.”

Jacob W.: “All hail OB Jato+Abhijato! His consolidation in the top of the Prediction Championship Table continues! If you are reading this Mr Debayan Sen, he is truly the Rashid Khan of the internet!”

SURehman: “Feel sorry for Malik and the Sultans. Once again let down by No-ball by Junaid, and dropped catch by charles.”

Saaib Uppal: “Sunday: Peshawar needed 31 off 16 vs Multan. Pollard hit 6, 6, 6, 6 Today: Peshawar needed 31 off 15 vs Multan. Pollard hit 6, 6, 6”

Hassan: “Shattered all my expectations Afridi, Akmal and Junaid didn’t perform, Malik again failed in captaincy and Multan lost ”

Roma Ahmed: “I don’t think it was that dropped catch or even the no-ball that let Sultans down. For me the captaincy cost them the match. Why Nouman and afridi are in the team even, if you have to give overs to the bowlers already having bad time??? Anyways, my day didn’t improve. I shall better sleep.”
